    Hello all this is my first post on the forums so i will start with saying hello to everyone.

    Like many others i have been reading here for about a week or 2 before posting researching what it is that i want to concentrate on to make a little extra dough.

    I have a Job IRL and am doing this on my spare time and just to see where it goes but would like to see good result and will not give in easily.

    My plan is use a blogspot to post 15 recipes on and more as I make them and post unique pictures along with them. (I am scared about taking pictures from pins and around the web for copyright issues if anyone can help out here if i should be or not I would like to hear from their experience).

    Pinning to Pinterest and Repinning many times a day.
    Gaining Followers and promoting that way through liking, commenting, following, repinning.


    Here is what i have so far:

    Day 1
    1 Pinterest account with 25 boards 194 Pins 61 Followers.
    1 Blogspot with 15 posts.
    1 tumblr account for extra traffic with 24 followers.

    Software:
    NinjaPinner

    Traffic:

    13 UV 0 Clicks

    Thanks to Raffy, Vekkata, Arkanian, and others for sharing your Journeys for others to learn for I hope I can also share and learn more with this as well.

    To reach your goal faster I would suggest you to make multiple accounts and get into a lot of big boards from your niche.

    Good luck with this journey! :)

    You don't need to hide it, you just need a dedicated IP for each account, at least that's the way I do it.

    You are scared because of Copyright and using blogspot
    Do you know how convenient it is for Blogspot to take your blog down with all database without any warning

    I would recommend to setup self hosted wordpress site, if you want to go free then go for hubpages or squidoo,
    Unless you copy paste content there, you are pretty safe there

    Repinning your pins is right strategy, but don't repin same pin on same board in a day or even i a week,
    It can get you in trouble, I only repin to a group board once it was pinned a month ago

    Start with like large number of pins like 100, shuffle them and then randomly post to all recipe group boards that you have

    At the end my best wishes are with you .. Hope you make BIG banks

    Like I said this is my first go at anything IM I am just trying to set a reachable goal and will go from there.

    When you say post 100 pins do you mean 100 unique pins or 100 pins repinned with your leading to your URL.

    I see some people scrape images from pinterest and change the link to their site. Is there a safe amount which this can be dobe at or is it easily bannable.

    Thanks for all the input and support!

    I will report later with some stats.

    With 100 pins i meant 100 images that should be posted to your site

    Changing URL's technique will get you ban pretty soon

    hi,i want to know how many articles you write/spin everyday for your self-hosted website and how many images you used for one article? if you use 100 images for one article(which is probably not the case),then you pin these 100 images to one board with the same url,isn't that obvious footprint?

    Quick update the last couple of days i have been real busy at my Job so have been doing updates and stuff on the fly.

    I added one post and just did some repining of my own and others pins. I also followed about 300 new people.

    Whatever i am doing it is working, the unique posts are definitely the key.

    Here are my stats for yesterday.
    127 UV 0 Clicks

    351 Pins 239 followers



    Slow and steady i just hope that i can keep doubling my traffic as time goes on.
    Also 25% of my traffic has been direct, on a website that is only 2 weeks old i think that is pretty good!

    Until next time!
    Now i just need to start getting some clicks!

    Not sure what it means with the direct traffic. I've been getting that a lot with my website, and it's accounted for about half of my traffic thus far. I know part of it is me, but there are well over 60 visits in the last few days, and I know my IP hasn't changed that many times. Anyone know what this is?
